Shot of the Week – Deer hunting isn’t just for the boys…
This week’s Wide Open Spaces “Shot of the Week” comes from the YouTube channel Razors Edge, which has shared a number of crossbow videos in the last month. The video, titled “Deer Hunting: Girls Hunt Too!” came to our attention because it highlighted a female alongside the heavily male-centered videos that inhabit YouTube.
The anticipation in the blind, the trigger finger at the ready, and the stellar job of sighting and shooting can be appreciated by any hunter, male or female.
Check out the video below, and be sure to watch the others from Razors Edge while you’re at it.
Location: Long Valley, New Jersey
Game: Whitetail Deer
Weapon: Scorpyd Ventilator 125 crossbow
Interesting Fact: Daniele, the hunter in the video, looked to Razors Edge to take her on her first crossbow hunt, and had little time to practice before heading out. Previous gun experience had helped, but for a first timer, we say she literally nailed it.
